“very well located, excellent attention”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

this hotel is within walking distance of many major city highlights, among them Chinatown and Darlington Harbour. My room was very spacious and well equipped, though a friend who traveled with me had a triple room that was smaller than my double room. The staff were very attentive and helpful, and this added to my excellent stay in this wonderful city. Sydney Opera House was also within walking distance, but then again I like to walk a lot! Great price-performance.

Room Tip: corner rooms are very spacious and well-equipped!

We recently stayed here for a overnight trip to sydney, i found this place on Laterooms and being from the UK and seeing the Best Western i thought this place should be good. The service on reception when we arrived was a little shakey as we were told it had parking but the parking was a multi storey down the road!!. Room was nice and clean and plenty of room to hang things, kitchette was clean and plenty of space to cook if necessary. We had breakfast included in our in stay, it was a basic continental breakfast and was help yourself downstairs in a bar area. Overall place was clean and slept ok but nothing like i am used to when i have stayed in Best Western hotels in UK.

This is a small but pleasant hotel. The rooms are very spacious and renovated. There can be problems with traffic noise. Once I had problems with the TV in the room. Some of the stations were not available. When I asked about it at the front desk they said they were aware of it although they had not told me when i checked in. A free drink voucher at the bar was offered. The coffee shop on the ground floor is convenient for a quick and tasty breakfast without a huge cost. Location is good, an easy walk to the restaurants in Oxford St and across the road from Hyde Park for a walk.

Room Tip: Rooms facing Wentworth Av can be noisy but the rooms at the back have an awful view onto other build...

Visiting from Canberra, stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. It is in a good location just off Liverpool/Oxford Streets near Hyde Park, and is very close to Museum Station and bus routes. It is also very easy to pick up a cab outside the hotel.

The room (deluxe King) was spacious, clean and comfortable with a basic kitchenette with microwave. The bathroom was a good size and had a window that could be opened if you want fresh air. The shower was effective. Free WiFi was available, and connection was easy and fast.

There is a happy hour between 5 and 6 with 2 drinks for the price of one - reasonably priced wine.

There are many restaurants and pubs in the vicinity (one recommendation is Watts on Crown on Crown Street - about a 10 minute walk. Great fish and chips with salad and trimmings - a bargain at $15.00), and there is a small convenience store next door.

My only complaint (and this goes for a lot of hotels) is that the lighting in the room is not strong enough.

That said, I would definitely recommend this hotel, and I will stay here again when next in Sydney.

Great location just south of Hyde Park. Large rooms with kitchenette, good beds, ok bathroom. Breakfast limited to continental, ok but nothing special.
Friendly staff, good Wi Fi free of charge.
Good value for money in expensive Sydney.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights as the first stop of our Australia trip. The hotel is easy to find by car from the airport. Location is great, right next to the Hyde park within walking distance of the harbors and ferries. Our room was ok and equipped with a kitchenette. Next door is a convenience store and breakfast places are not far away around Liverpool street. Overall good value for money.

If you are looking for a convenient hotel near the CBD, this place works perfect. Right across from Hyde Park and the Museum train stop, you can get almost anywhere in Sydney easily. The hotel is furnished nice enough, though it has a certain early 60's vibe -- basically, contemporary 60's style furniture. The rooms are spacious with a kitchenette. However, I booked a king suite and wound up with king bed that was actually two fulls pushed together!! Not fun rolling back and forth across a definate bed gap all night. Had to sleep on one small half or the other. Not exactly my idea of a king bed. The staff was pleasant enough, though did not go out of their way to make you feel welcome either. And the housekeeping staff -- a whole other problem. Two days in a row, came back to my room around 4pm after being out all day --- expecting to clean up for a night out only to find that my room had not been touched yet. Like I said, for convenience sake it is hard to beat this general location but that's about it.

Room Tip: definately want a room other than back side over alley. Bar across alley with breaking bottles all n...
